You worked hard on this and ended up with a version that has lots of character, well done.

El Suavacito welcome to the HC! I too play blues harmonica. This site isn't much for
blues players, too far past the abilities of most of the players here. But, from time to
time a player with your sensibilities will come on board. I feel Blues and Jazz are the
true American classical music forms.

That is impressive Andy.

I did have a crack at it on the diatonic but it beat me. I am currently using the 'Midnight Cowboy' riff for bending practice, I had been using a tuner to try and make the bends accurate but Howard Levy suggested using a keyboard instead to help get my ear in so for now at least ,I have downloaded a piano app onto my tablet and between that and the tuner something seems to be happening.

The Swan doesn't bend like my other harps but you can get something out of it. If you follow the score the timing is tricky so I am pretty sure I have deviated here and there, but I think this one is all about interpretation anyway.

Thanks all for the encouragement.

I am still thinking of the next purchase though :)

Definitely worthy!

Perhaps I'm mistaken, but did I hear some chromatic bends there..?

Hi Jimmc, good decision that you have taken. SCX48 is a nice harp. I never played, but listened live playing Without microphone. Excellent...it's a beautiful looking harp also. On receipt of your new chrom. please let me know your playing experience on cross slider design.

Both songs this month! Nice work, Jeremy. Your Swan sounds really good. I meant to do this one on chromatic too. I like how those versions sound a lot.

I'll be interested to hear how you like each harmonica. I just went for the cheapest, in case I didn't like the chromatic concept, but I do and am now considering an upgrade, although I am in a quandary as to how many holes, 12 would probably be smart but I would like to have the low notes.

It's a little tricky to find or organize things on this site. Here's a link to May's other tune...
www.harmonicaclub.com/forum/learn-to-pla...-month?start=42#3793
We vote on two songs to learn each month since some members are pretty quick and can get a song in under a week.
You can always find the current and past tunes of the month in the forum called "technique and Learning to Play." The polls to vote for each month's tunes are there too.
Watch for the poll during the last week of each month, speaking of the poll, it's up now. The two songs with the most votes are posted around the first of each month. Send me suggestions of tunes you'd like to see in the poll any time.

I think that was Stormy Weather -there have been several attempts, although I am still trying to get all the way through without a major error.

I'm missing something. This song was in second place? What's in first place and are we playing that one as well? Thanks.

Well, now you have your bases basically covered.
A Hohner, Seydel, and a Suzi .
i am not sure how big the differences are, but sometimes I really want to play one make/model instead of another....
Mine are all different keys/ tunings though so that might be part of it.
You should be all set for a bit, at least a couple of weeks, until HAS comes back.
What will be next ? 16 holes? 14? An alternate tuning?
